The end of austerity: Why tax cuts are better than spending hikes

A panel discussion on the “end of austerity” and how the new government can still find room for tax cuts.


So-called austerity is apparently coming to an end. As Britain prepares for Brexit (and an election?), the purse strings have been loosened.

Ministers have teased some big picture cuts to stamp duty and income tax, but what should be prioritised? And how do we do so in a fiscally responsible way?
